We do not believe in teaching steps or moves, we believe in teaching to dance. We focus our attention on the basics, the connection with the partner, the music, and the overall body awareness. Understanding these building blocks is what will set you apart on the dance floor!

Swing Philosophy believes it’s very important that artists, venues & organisers earn a fair income, thus our scene becomes sustainable. That is why we charge prices that are making it economically viable to pay everyone fairly.
Still, building an inclusive community is just as important to us! So, we support people that don’t have the financial possibility to attend with our solidarity policy that implies ‘GIVE WHAT YOU CAN MISS’ and NO QUESTIONS ASKED! Meaning that you can acces events & classes based on donating the money that you can miss.
If you want to make use of this policy, please email or text us.

Quite often it is useful to repeat a course, as most people don’t have prior dancing experience. If you do have such an experience, the teacher will notice and advise you appropriately. For SOLO JAZZ classes, it’s up to you when you are ready for the next challenge, so give it a try and see how it goes!
